San Diegan recalls driving in George H.W. Bush’s motorcade

Presidents George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush were…Enlarge Presidents George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush were…Enlarge

"I never felt the loneliness some Presidents have described", Bush continued in a somewhat heartfelt manner - an exchange hardly expected between two presidents in today's highly divisive political environment in the United States. Family ties to financiers helped Jeb Bush get his start in Florida real estate in the 1980s, and connections aided in George W. Bush's becoming part owner of the Texas Rangers from 1989 until being elected Texas governor in 1994.

To honor the former president, the worldwide nonprofit Points of Light, founded by Bush, invited the public to celebrate Bush by giving a day of service in his memory.

George H.W. Bush also went to Yale, but to make his own name for himself apart from past Bush successes, he headed to Texas and the oil business - before being elected to Congress from Houston in 1966.

In keeping with presidential tradition, a detailed schedule of the funeral and memorial services for former President George H.W. Bush was released Saturday evening, with ceremonies planned in Houston; Washington, D.C.; and Spring, and College Station, Texas.

Sitting alongside German Chancellor Angela Merkel, he refused to say whether he had any regrets over his past criticism of the Bushes.

Bush's remains will be transported on Monday from Ellington Field in Houston to Joint Base Andrews, Md., on Air Force One.

"I will forever remember his stubborn struggle to allow my immigration to Eretz Israel", Edelstein said.

Trump also closed government offices Wednesday and designated it as a national day of mourning, which traditionally occurs on the same day as the Washington component of a late president's state funeral. He had enlisted in the US Navy on his 18th birthday.

"I think when people hear the name George H.W. Bush they think of the word 'statesman, '" George P. Bush told The Associated Press in 2013.

Trump mocked the "points of light" phrase at some of his campaign rallies this year.

"Do you regret any of your comments about George H.W. Bush or the Bush family?" a reporter asked.

"President Bush guided our nation and the world to a peaceful and victorious conclusion of the Cold War", the Trumps wrote.

"And through all that he accomplished, he remained humble, following the quiet call to service that gave him a clear sense of direction". A true testament to his character was his ability to befriend his old political rivals, a reminder that despite our differences, more unites the American people, including its leaders, than divides us.
